A reproduction umbrella for this very early time period.
The frame, produced by Barrington Brolly, is made of 3/4″ walnut, for strength and durability. And, as was the design of that time, the walnut shaft of this umbrella, is 4 feet, in length. It is very reminiscent of the “staff parasol”, on display at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, England.
This version of a Georgian Period Umbrella has metal ribs, with plans to offer a second version, of this same umbrella, but with walnut ribs.
The canopy of this special umbrella, while not period-appropriate, certainly looks “the part”. And, with 20th century technology, this fabric not only provides protection from the rain, but also provides a “cooler” shade, due to its sun-protective qualities.
And, should the need arise, Barrington Brolly does provide a repair service, for all its products.
Jonas Hanway would, no doubt, give a tip-of-his-hat, to this reproduction.
Note: shipping costs for this product will be affected, due to the length of the umbrella. Shipping costs can be provided, by requesting this information through our “Contact” form.
